The 4 Greeks Blog
On the campus of University of California Davis there is a new Greek Chapter! For a school that has a great program for Greek life the news is very exciting. On Friday November 11th the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity initiated California Epsilon! The very next day, Saturday November 12th, the Chapter was officially installed.
This past Monday, November 7th 2011, was one of the most important days of the school year here at Chico State. It was a day where students came together from all different organizations, fraternities, and sororities to help get donations for the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Monday was the infamous Up ‘Til Dawn. The theme was “Game On!” so students showed up not only in letters and Chico State attire, but football jerseys too. Frisbees, pizza, drinks, cinnamon bread, shirts, and so much more were given out to students who participated. The shirts were inspirational and made it clear what...
Greek Week has finally come to an end. I love the 90s Greekelodeon brought together Greek organizations in order to raise money for Habitat for Humanity and Boys and Girls Club. The week began with the Parade of Lights, which is a parade that goes through downtown Chico. Team Are You Afraid of the Dark won with their spooky float covered with zombies, lit up letters and a haunted house. The blood drive on Monday and Tuesday was a huge success. Alpha Gamma Delta had more than 80 people donate their blood and other chapters were not too far behind.
It’s that time of year again. The time when can you spot lit-up floats, donate to blood drives, get involved in community clean-ups, and are absolutely inundated with all those Greek letters. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Greek Week! This year, the theme is “I Love the 90s: Greekolodeon” and all the sororities and fraternities are divided into teams named after old nickelodeon shows, like “Rugrats” and “Rocket Power.”
It was a very windy Friday afternoon this past week as the opening round of the fraternity softball playoffs kicked off. It was a great day for softball regardless of the weather, as three of the four games were decided by one run. The first game was between Sigma Pi and Alpha Sigma Phi. Sigma Pi jumped out early and led practically the entire game, but a late rally with the bases loaded by Alpha Sig won them the game in the final inning by a score of 10-8. The second game of the afternoon was between Sigma Nu and...
The well-know Fraternity, Phi Delta Theta, held its annual Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) this year at the Fraternity’s birthplace at Miami University in Oxford Ohio. Phi Delta Theta consists of around 230,000 members with Chapters in the United States and Canada. ELI is a program put on by the fraternity in which two or more Brothers are nominated to represent their Chapters in a leadership based conference.
On May 6th the Alpha Phi Chapter in San Luis Obispo held their Red Dress Gala. This is their fourth year hosting this event in San Luis Obispo. This year the members of Alpha Phi were able to reach their goal of $20,000 dollars and over the past three years they have recorded $60,000 towards the Alpha Phi Foundation. The Alpha Phi Foundation was first established in 1956 to help found research for cardiac care.
It was a great day to be involved in Greek athletics this past Friday. The afternoon featured two semi-final games, a home run derby, and the championship game. The home run derby competition was in honor of Gunnar Sandberg, whose inspirational comeback after being struck in the head by a baseball about a year ago, has impacted many students at Chico State. Next spring, the first annual Gunnar Sandberg award will be given out this event to an inspirational Chico State student.
There was seemingly no better location for Pi Kappa Alpha Fireman’s Ball than the “Biggest Little City in the World.” Reno’s lights and casino atmosphere was a fresh vibe for the Pike’s and their dates. Getting out of Chico gave the formal a different feel than any other social or date dance the Lambda Psi chapter had been a part of previously in the semester. Most of the gentlemen stayed at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino, which is also connected to Circus Circus and the Eldorado. Check in began at 3:00pm on Saturday, May 7th. As the men began to filter in throughout the day,...
